2) Are You Praying for the Unreached?

City for the Nations pray for the UNREACHED people groups (UPGs) of the spiritually darkest places on Earth. They are committed to specific and timely prayer for the breakthrough happening in these unreached nations.  Ultimately, their aim within each city is to have an army of 1000 intercessors, each praying for 30 minutes a week and covering UPGs in 24/7 prayer.  Be involved in praying for the unreached.  Go to www.CityfortheNations.com to sign up or for more information.

4) Send an Edition of Brigada to the World!

We’re so grateful for a $200 gift this past week from Asbury United Methodist Church (Tulsa, OK). God bless you!!! Other friends and True Fans of Brigada sent $200, $50, $50, $104, and $103.48. By doing so, they are propelling Brigada to mobilizers, missions, and evangelists worldwide. The map (adjacent to this item) pictures graphically how far we’ve come, with a total of $9310 given so far toward a $17,000 budget for 2023, meaning that we have only $7689 to go. If 77 “True Fans” of Brigada sent $100 this week, Brigada would be 100% undergirded for he new year. To join these partners, just click to https://brigada.org/empower-brigada. May God bless you!!!

6) Forms…and More Forms.

6) Forms…and More Forms.

A few weeks ago, we mentioned the app, jotform.  https://brigada.org/2022/11/27_37158/comment-page-1#comment-426765.  It seems many of us are creating forms.  While many like using jotform several Brigada readers mentioned that the drawback with jotform is they allow only a limited amount of forms and input in their free plan.  A reader commented that they use Google forms and another mentioned https://www.cognitoforms.com/.  Do you know of a form that allows attachments?  What do you use? read more…

7) Snail Mail Heaven

Snail mail becomes more special, more surprising, and more meaningful every year. We’ve recently come across Postable at www.postable.com.  You can send cards that seriously look handwritten.  You can schedule birthday cards to send out, and you can even send a link to friends, family, and even donors to have them update their information, and it will go straight into the address book.  Postable will print, stuff, stamp, address and mail all of your cards directly to everyone for you.  Do you use Postable?  What do you use?  Please comment.

9) What’s Your View?

9) What’s Your View?

Chris Pine stated, “The only thing you sometimes have control over is perspective. You don’t have control over your situation. But you have a choice about how you view it.”  We’ve come across a site that has views from different windows all across the world.  Go to https://www.window-swap.com/.   Pretty cool, huh?

10) What’s Your Best Christmas Memory?

10) What’s Your Best Christmas Memory?

What’s Your best Christmas memory? I remember going sledding with my whole family on the hill by the old cemetery. We would build a small fire, make hot chocolate, and try to warm our hands. I also remember going caroling with my youth group, singing through the windows of homes of “shut-ins.” At church, we would always do some kind of Christmas program. Sometimes, we would have a “Christmas piece” to read. They would print them out on tiny strips of paper. If we forgot our part, we could read the words off those tiny strips. Our church always fixed up a “Christmas Treat” for each of us, complete with an apple, an orange, some peanuts in the shell and (the best part) a candy bar. My family would pick a night to sing Christmas carols around the piano. I always felt a bit of pressure because I was the one playing the piano. (Decades later, I still feel a bit of pressure whenever I’m playing the piano in a worship service.) We would always record them (on an old reel-to-reel recorder). It was a pretty big deal to us. : ) Dad always read “the Christmas story” from the Bible before we started opening gifts. I guess he wanted to make sure we understood why we were doing what we were doing. That’s still crucial today — that we re-center our lives, reaffirm our purpose, and look out toward a world full of people, many of whom still haven’t heard for the first time of the real reason behind Christmas.

So what’s YOUR best Christmas memory? Please take just a moment and click comment to share. And thanks for being part of the Brigada family!!!
